Acer Aspire 1310 Laptop ComputerStrange as it may seem it has been extremely difficult to install my preferred Ubuntu Linux Operating System, this laptop being destined for Morroco it was extremely important that it was installed with a Linux Open Source Operating System. The systems that were tried include the following:
- Jaunty Jackalope 9.04 beta Desktop release
- Intrepid Ibex 8.10 Desktop
- LinuxMint 6 Felicia
- OpenSuSE Ver 11.1
- PCLinux 2009
As Linux is still a mystery to many people, the purpose of this Wiki page is to hold your hand and enable you to install PCLinuxOS 2007. Accompanied with screen shots, it aims to provide all the answers you need for a successful installation.
After installing PCLinuxOS on an Acer 5051AWXMi laptop, the sound would disappear whenever I rebooted the computer.
This was strange behavior, as when ran it from the Live CD, it worked perfectly. Furthermore, if I ran the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Configurator in a terminal, (command = alsaconf), the sound would work yet again until the next time I rebooted the machine.
Clearly from the afore mentioned behavior, something wasn't happening during the boot sequence - part 1.
